Keeping the house, the kids and the hubby without breaking the bank, the earth, the people I love, or myself.

Green Goodness Smoothie

It's a HIT! WOW! I was hesitant to try this recipe since I have a child who won't eat green things. He saw the spinach leaves go into the blender and I was sure I'd lost him at that point. Wrong! He LOVED it! It's quite sweet and refreshing. Everyone loved it. It has a fibrous texture, but no one seemed to mind that at all. They have renamed it to "Monster Mash" and asked that we have some floating eyeballs (grapes) next time.

This served the five of us with some to spare! The two youngest got 6 ounces each and the rest of us had 8 ounces.

  • 2 bananas sliced if fresh (I used frozen bananas)
  • 2 cups fresh grapes, washed
  • 3 cups fresh spinach, washed
  • 1 whole apple cored, peeled and sliced
  • 12 ounces plain yogurt

Add the yogurt and banana first, then all other ingredients. Blend until smooth. You'll need to push things down a couple times to get it all blended, but it all will.

Pour and serve!

I'm making this again tomorrow at the kids' request. How's that for getting the green leafies into them? Works for me!

About Me

I am a happily married woman with four children and various cats and kittens (fosters). I love to read and my favourite authors are George RR Martin, Thomas Hardy, Raymond Carver, PD James, Kurt Vonnegut, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood. I know there are only three women in that list (and none of them American), so if you'd like to suggest some I'm willing to give them a shot! And yes, I am an American living in Canada. (Hence the nick -- CannedAm.) I like it here. There are things about the states that I miss, but my love is here and this country has things to offer that my own does not. Things that make my quality of life much better than it ever was in Ohio. Guess I'm stuck here. Though there's a nice spot in the Appalachian hills where I'd love to spend my retirement.
